Title:
18F-FDG PET in the Diagnosis of Vascular Prosthetic Graft Infection: A Diagnostic Test Accuracy Meta-Analysis.

Rojoa, D.; Kontopodis, N.; Antoniou, Stavros A.; Ioannou, C. V.; Antoniou, G. A.
Abstract:
For the diagnosis of vascular prosthetic graft infection (VPGI), an intra-operative peri-graft biopsy is often required. Controversy exists regarding the use of imaging techniques in the diagnostic process. This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 18-fluorine fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in VPGI.
